- Nice photo but S whipplei grows ony in Navajo Rez and thereabouts, has yellow flowers. Sclerocacti are widey mis- identified.
- Identification: Jane Hendrix (2010-12-03) =Sclerocactus whipplei var. intermedius
- add \"var. intermedius\" to \"Sclerocactus whipplei\" (source: Colorado Flora - Western Slope, by William A. Weber), synonym of S. parviflorus ssp. intermedius.

- Sclerocactus whipplei used to be used for the whole complex (older editions) but now is restricted to the type form Dorde refers to: our Colorado curved spined Scleros are all parviflorus: this is a super specimen! (Sent: Alpineemail@example.com)
